£14.93 gets you 4 soups, 4 canned veg, 6x canned tuna, 1kg tin of sweetcorn, 4 cans beans, 1 pack of sausages, 500g fusilli pasta and a pack of spaghetti in B&M.
I'll be dropping off when South Wigston Food bank opens tomorrow.
in May 2016 i never thought I would hate football, the premier league and every club in it (except Leicester) as little as 4 yrs later and give less than zero ****s what the outcome of a big Sunday fixture was.
About 10% of the people (perhaps more in central leicester) who attended the 250,000 strong celebration of the title win will soon be out of work and our leagur chooses that time to introduce the most costly PPV product of all time after spending £1.25bn on summer transfer fees.
****ing ridiculous.
Absolutely this. On every level.

There is a slight difference - 4 pages of posts on here mainly stay on here (unless a media company lifts some) Our statement will be combined with other Trusts statements and be presented to the Premier League as official fans feedback from each of the Premier League clubs fans groups, so it forms part of the Football Supporters Association campaign for the PL to re-think
Just a thought, but if stuff stays on here, why post the statement on here when posters on here have already said the same thing on here that you have posted on here?

I love all these "fan groups"

Of PL clubs that are wholly owned by billionaires

Chocolate fireguards the lot of them.

If people have a desperate need to feel important to a small group of people why not just have children like everyone else?

How does the fan group and the billionaires have any relationship? Are you supposed to throw away decades of support when your club gets bought up by one?

If so, you should be chatting to your children.

Missing the point.

If fans were to give up support after billionaires buy the club this forum would have been empty for the last decade.

I'm referring to the way these groups like to pretend that they have some sort of voice or purpose when it comes to the club. That there is some point to their existence. There isn't. Not in the modern game.

Headed notepaper is all they are. They might have had some relevance after administration or even in the Mandaric years (slightly) but not since.

For clubs that aren't wholly owned subsidiaries of huge corporate or state entities I'm all for them. But the others are a waste of everyone's time. Nobody at the club listens to a word they say. Ever. So what purpose do they serve? **** all.

Fans Groups associated with Leicester City are asking fans NOT to purchase the forthcoming game against Arsenal on Sunday and any future games whilst the fee for these games remains at the high price of £14.95.

Foxes Trust, Union FS, LCFC Disabled Supporters Association, Foxes Pride.

Suggested charities to donate to instead are detailed on our website

We have had regular dialogue with the club throughout 2020 and our views have been sought on a wide variety of topics. The topic of PPV games, including streaming on the clubs website (our clubs website is capable, but not all 20 clubs websites are) was discussed way before Project Restart games commenced and we gave a view that £10 per game was the absolute maximum. Given the club were the only one that voted against the proposals they were certainly listening unlike other clubs.

You've had a few emails from the work experience person in the PR dept to keep you happy in your delusion that the club listens to you.

But fine. Carry on believing that you've influenced decisions at board level.

I've been enjoying my own role advising the govt on the Covid-19 response. They haven't implemented all my recommendations so far but enough has been done to convince me that they are genuinely listening to my advice.

I'm happy, you're all happy.

That's 5 happy people in total.

Life is great isn't it?

****ing hell.

And it does what harm to the cause, or to you? If they were getting involved and putting across a view that fans weren't in agreement in, then you *might* have a point to make, but as it is, you're just acting like a keyboard warrior who seems to believe there's no value in making the fan's opinions known to billionaire owners.

There isn't any value. None whatsoever.

& it doesn't cause me any personal harm.

I just have an inbuilt distaste for hubris.

Self important wankers who like to make out that what they do is somehow having an effect get right on my tits. Always have & always will.

As for keyboard warrior...well, thats just a meaningless millenial soundbite.

This is an internet forum. So it essentially describes all of us.

When Mike Ashley says it's too much, you've really crossed a line.

Apparently there's set to be a vote on this tomorrow. Feels like something is going to give. Hopefully we've endured our last of this nonsense.
